The Raise the Roof concert series began with a stroke of inspiration as Earl Thomas decided to support The Blues Foundation’s “Raise The Roof!” campaign to build a Blues Hall Of Fame in Memphis Tennessee, by donating his time and talents as a blues artist. Word quickly got out about Thomas’ project, and it wasn’t long before Thomas saw many of his fellow musicians across the country aligning with his cause and offering their help. As a result, the Alberta Rose show will feature performances by:
Earl Thomas & The Blues Ambassadors
China Forbes (from Pink Martini)
Dave Fleschner & Alan Hager
Tony Furtado and Stephanie Schneiderman
Alabama’s Lisa Mills
Liv Warfield (Prince) Via satellite
plus a few surprise guests.
It’s going to be off the hook!
